Crop inserted pictures in OneNote 2016 for Mac

Sometimes you may want to edit pictures you already have added to your notes in OneNote. One way to edit the pictures is to crop them. With cropping, you can remove unnecessary parts of a picture, or resize it to make it fit better. When editing the pictures in OneNote, the Photos app on your Mac is a handy helper.
